I was asked to participate in the third panel of the conference together with David Waroquier, the Principal at Mangrove Capital Partners, Yegor Anchishkin, GVMachines’ founder, Teodoro D’Ambrosio, an Italian-Swiss IT entrepreneur and Oskar Hartmann, CEO of KupiVip (the online Russian shopping club which recently attracted $55m investment).
There were many innovational projects, but the projects that attracted my attention most are kitapps and endorphin. I wish IDCEE and its organizers further development and innovational ideas.
